The Embodied Healthcare Professional:

Present, Resourced, Open


Course overview:

Reporting, information overload, burnout. The demands of today’s healthcare system are challenging. How might we use the body as a resource to better support ourselves and our clients?

This 3-hour workshop invites you back to basics, shifting our focus from mind to whole-body experience, considering the idea of embodied presence, and showing you how to introduce creative, movement-based interventions into your client work. Through a range of practical exercises, reflection, observation and discussion, we’ll consider embodiment as a self-care practice, as a way of being and as a way to enliven our work with clients.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand the meaning of the word ‘embodied’
  • Practise the tracking of body process, starting with yourself
  • Experience movement and embodiment as a form of self-care
  • Reflect on the benefit of embodied presence in your life
  • Learn how to incorporate movement into your client work with greater confidence
  • Practise being with another person from an embodied state

What ideas are explored?

  • The concept of sustainable practice in healthcare
  • Movement as metaphor
  • The body – an often-missed resource that’s right under your nose
  • Shifting our mindset to include the body
  • Embodiment is not something we do, it’s how we are
  • Movement practices are not difficult to introduce into client work

Training methods will include:

  • Interactive and practical presentation
  • Large and small group discussions
  • Live demonstrations and experientials of methods
  • Guided movement experiences
  • Opportunities to reflect on applications of the material

Please note, this is a LIVE and INTERACTIVE training event. We don't record this.

Who Should Attend?

Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, diversional therapists, case workers, psychotherapists, allied health professionals and students of these disciplines. No prior knowledge necessary.
